Name: Neomi Bennett
Business Founded: Neo-Slip
Bio: Passionate about patient safety, business and innovation in healthcare, Neomi Bennett is a Registered Nurse who on her own initiative has turned a life-saving idea into a multi-award winning product.
Neo-slip® is a novel yet practical solution to the problem of applying hospital socks.
Though vital to the prevention of potentially life- threatening Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), the hospital socks are tight fitting and can be difficult to put on.
Her company Neo-innovations UK LTD now supplies 34 hospitals across the UK, has been approved by NHS Supply Chain since May 2017, and is available on NHS prescription (FP10).
In addition, Neo-slip® is available to order via branches of Boots across the UK.
In 2018, Neomi’s was awarded the BEM.
